Four Pepper and Cauliflower Chili

A rant and a recipe for my Four Pepper and Cauliflower Chili.

Let the rant begin..

I was listening to a YouTube show the other day, Tom Bilyeu/ Impact Theory, and his guest was Tim Ferriss. The episode itself was about pushing your limits, etc. He said many good and wise things but one take away I had was what to do when you have writers block. 

I experience this sometimes..

As I have all the concepts I would like to cover but when it comes to getting the words out, I draw a blank or I go ahead and write freely and it just sounds awful.

One of Tim Ferriss’ suggestions was to write about something that makes you angry.

What makes me angry?

In my mind, I’m thinking okayyyy- how can I write about something that makes me angry without going FULL RANT on you.  LOL

One particular experience I am getting writers block on is my health and transformation journey. Something that makes me angry is how people can view healthy food in such a negative light.

For example

If someone chooses not to eat dairy or simply they are lactose intolerant but don’t feeling like sharing it with the world and they were to order an oat milk latte, and then later get ripped on by their friend, family member or co-worker or who ever they are with on why aren’t they having regular milk. Or their food choices in other peoples eyes becomes this big ordeal. Why is that?!? Another negative I hear often is healthy dishes are bland, no flavor, or BORING!!!

As you will learn more about me later on in my posts, I try my HARDEST to live a healthy lifestyle, consistently. My drive behind this is that at one time in my life, I was obese. 

I have officially announced that to the world.

I have the hardest time coming out of that head space though my body has physically changed. My journey began around 2002 and I have maintained a healthy weight since 2006 and when it comes to writing about my health transformation, I never have. I think more so because it’s raw, it was a very hard journey and one that a lot of people don’t understand. 

How you fuel yourself matters. 

Every October for the last 5 years, I have done an October Whole 30. If you are not familiar with what that is, please check out the link I inserted. Well in short, Whole 30 cuts out grain, sugar and dairy for a whole 30 days, which in turn your body will feel the difference. Many people do it for different reasons, but as I have gotten older, my tolerance to foods have changed.

Growing up, my child hood diet was- beans and rice, sugar sandwiches {you’re probably like what the hell is a sugar sandwich but it is white bread, butter and sugar sprinkled on top} and on a special day we would have like a pork chop with olives and onions with rice, or maybe a Spam sandwich and Burger King. LOL. These food choices were income driven and when I became an adult, I didn’t know what healthy was.

This is maybe why I love vegetables now because I never ate them before. LOL ..who knew broccoli IS actually good.

Back to Whole 30

I chose October to be the month of Whole 30 mainly because it is right before the holiday and to eliminate me stealing my kids Halloween candy, it just speaks to me that October should be the month to reset. 

I’m not trying to sell you on what you shouldn’t eat, as I can only speak for myself and my health. But I will let you know, healthy food can be delicious and I swear {I’m a broken record now}how you fuel yourself daily – matters. 

In light of Whole 30 October, one of the recipes I came up with recently is: 

Four Pepper and Cauliflower Chili. 

Trust me, you won’t miss the beans! Corn bread is optional for people.
